This class consists of two key components: Improvisation Practice, and Physical Training. The relationship between the two is imperative to the understanding of class materials as they intersect with personal expression. Additionally, it offers students a deeper knowledge of the body and its inter-workings.

Through physical training, a strong emphasis is place on dynamic, full-bodied movement as informed and infused by knowledge of the energy systems of the body through the lens of movement forms such as Yoga, Pilates, and exposure to the martial art form, Kalari. Key distinguishing movement aesthetics include: buoyancy, undulation, circularity, spirals, spinal articulation, quick weight transfer, and a general sense of being grounded.

This way of training cultivates a body which is adaptable, variable, and mobile. It maintains a legible and informed body, one that is constantly challenged.
